The U.S. Social Forum kicked off this week in Detroit, with over 20,000 attendees from around the country determined to create solutions for the many problems the country faces. One of the ongoing struggles that fans of GRITtv will understand is the fight to create a thriving, independent media without corporate dollars--one that puts the concerns of real people ahead of profits.
Don Rojas, Executive Director of Free Speech TV (GRITtv's satellite home on DISH network and now DirectTV as well) joins us to talk about the media collaborations happening at the Forum and beyond. Check out Free Speech TV's livestream from the Forum--and keep an eye out for Laura on there this weekend. Distributed by Tubemogul.
